Garnham, Peter
February 2008
Horticulture;Feb/Mar2008, Vol. 105 Issue 2, p19
The author shares his ideas on organic gardening. He does not believe people yet know enough about the long-term effects of chemicals. Organic growing methods feed the soft, which feeds the plants. The result is plants that shrug off insects and diseases without the aid of chemicals. Whenever possible, the author starts with organic seeds. The best way to do this is to buy those seeds in preference to others. His honeybees feed on the blooms, alongside other pollinators that are the keystone of horticultural and agricultural crops.
